Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Carmilla (via liquidlightandrunningtrees)
see this is why context is important. this is a quote by a vampire to her victim. Their relationship to each other is quite obviously representative of the really fucked up relationship relationship between Ireland and England. This shit isn’t about love, it is about colonialism.
It is actually a really dope book (lesbian vampires in the 1800s!) that influenced Stoker a lot.
